If fifty people were put into the same room and made to experience the same thing, every person would have a different story. The things that are endured shape the characters, but how they choose to cope with what is handed to them, shapes them even more. The characters featured the most in Storming Heaven are going through rough things, but each character is different. The two poems that were selected were A Place with Promise and Tobacco and Curry Leaves, both of these show how a place can shape a person. The environment that the characters are in contribute to how they act, how they live, and the type of people they are around.

The poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye speaks about how you experience kindness and what it really is. The main point in this poem is that in order to experience people's kindness you need to experience hurt, sorrow, and loneliness. The author says that when you loose everything and have no one or thing that when kindness comes along it lifts you up "and then goes with you everywhere/ like a shadow or a friend" (33-34). When portraying this message the author uses a sad but hopeful tone to send the message she wants to say. This tone helps portray the message because you can feel how sad someone is when they are lonely and they have nothing.
Thomas Cole’s The Voyage of Life: Manhood, embodies the stress and hardship associated with maturation, and the confusion and turmoil that one faces when transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. Painted in 1842, during the peak of Romanticism, the image depicts a fearful man, the Everyman, sailing down a roaring river surrounded by a gnarled tree and jagged rocks in a golden boat. A cliff hangs over the river, and the sky above is dark with only a small glimpse of light in the horizon. In the top left corner, the image of an angel penetrates the threatening clouds and watches over the man, though he does not notice her.
I’d never heard music like this before, Such loft voices, masculine and clear, And magisterial- - Credo, Gloria and Sanctus.

Romanticism and Nature Topic chosen for my research is based on romanticism and nature. Romanticism and nature are almost of same meaning to each other. Romanticism (also the romantic era or the Romantic period) was an artistic, literary, and intellectual movement that originated in Europe towards the end of 18th century and in most areas was at its peak in the approximate period from 1800 to 1850. To set a typical example we can take it as romantic lyric which suggest a mystical relationship with nature. Many romantic poets has its ability to connect romanticism with nature through their expression of love, imagination and his experience in a natural setting to go beyond his/her everyday life.
